Cash for College Statewide Webinar Toolkit
Statewide Cash for College Webinars Social Media Toolkit 22-23
The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted California students’ plans to attend college. This has been illuminated by the decline in financial aid application completion and college enrollment nationwide. Regardless of the pandemic, we cannot afford to fail students who are the future of our state.
The California Student Aid Commission is excited to announce that registration for our Statewide Cash for College Webinars is now live! The webinars will provide information to help students and families complete the FAFSA and California Dream Act Application (CADAA). The webinars are FREE and open to all students and families applying for financial aid. Volunteers will answer questions throughout the session via Q&A (general questions only) and one-on-one assistance through the Cash for College Hotline after the webinar.
